or the Phil and Jerry Dance with the Stars show

I was watching this video while listening to some fall 72 and the video seemed timed to Phil and Jerry and looked like the old Ying Yang game in spades.

Anyway I might have been high too or too high.

Jerry's voice sounds a little different to me, more deliberate maybe, on Loser and Candyman and Bird Song, all nice versions.(Loser audio is off.)
The meat is the He's Gone Truckin TOO and as C Free asked which came first or which do you like better, if any.
This five show run in Texas is top of the world, Ma. I know 11/18 and 19 get all the love but these others are right there too.


Felts Forums Four show run is always a treat for the finer 71 shows.

Love how during a tech delay (Phil's broken string or some such) Jerry starts picking the Stonewall Jackson hit 'Muddy Water,' and how slow-but-steady everybody else eventually starts to chime in as well. Not planned and certainly not rehearsed, but glorious.
Love how Jerry essentially edits the lyrics, leaving out more of them than he actually sings -might have been what he could remember, sure- but nonetheless makes the tune so much more soulful as a result.

Nope. Not even close..

'Had I listened to what Daddy told me, I would not feel so all alone.' You know that lyric is as old as those hills of Virginia and North Carolina. Tales of woe but also warnings to the young-uns, tending the social order through music..

Jerry's "Muddy Water" is sort of a mix of it and the Carter Family's "East Virginia Blues" . Man I wish they would put it their rep. It is like he makes up with the lyrics by singing on his guitar .

The place of music in the culture, the intermingling of the songs and the lyrics themselves, was what I was going for and your example here is perfect.
You can hear traces of 'Rosalie McFall' in 'East Virginia Blues' here as well.
Having a peek at Jerry's record collection at it's height would have been a treat indeed. You know when he slaps on a Dolly Parton record -as he did that time for a journalist hanging out at his house in 1970- it was one that ranged far and wide.

I is always amazing how they could go from deep "spiritual" waters into the "secular," and have it work so well . At least in their better moments, . Dark Star> Sitting on top of the World, wow .

Good point as a topic and an example. The other songs ( not S S ) they landed on out of Dark Star like here with Bobby McGee and Sitting and others like Miss 1/2 Step, Cumberland, El Paso seem like a splashdown, back from space to a familiar place. You get your sea legs back.
